Stuffed Fillets Of Sole

Wind long, thin, narrow fillets of sole around small carrots to keep their shape, fastening with tooth-picks. Simmer the trimmings of the fish for half an hour in two cup-fuls of boiling water to cover, seasoning with salt and paprika. Cover the fillets with one cupful of this stock and half a cupful of white wine. Simmer for twenty minutes. Cook together one tablespoonful each of butter and flour, add one-half cupful of fish stock and cook until thick, stirring constantly. Take from the fire, add one-half cupful of chopped shrimps and one-half cupful of chopped oysters, the yolk of one egg well beaten, and Worcestershire, salt, and Tabasco Sauce to season. Take out the carrots and replace with the cooked mixture. Cool, dip the fillets in egg and crumbs, fry in deep fat, and serve with any preferred sauce.

Chaudfroid Of Soles

Marinate the fillets of three soles in seasoned lemon-juice. Chop half a dozen mushrooms and cook for five minutes in butter, seasoned with pepper and salt. Add enough bread-crumbs to make a smooth paste, cool, and spread on the fillets. Fold each piece of fish so that the stuffing will be in the middle, arrange on a buttered baking-dish, cook in a moderate oven, and cool. Cook together one tablespoonful each of butter and flour, and add one cupful of fish stock made from the bones and trimmings of the soles. Take from the fire, add a little cream, and stir until cold. Pour the sauce over the fillets, garnish with lemon, parsley, and hard-boiled eggs, and serve very cold.

Fritters Of Sole

Rub two tablespoonfuls of butter into half a pound of flour, add a pinch of salt, the beaten yolk of an egg, and enough cold water to make a very stiff paste. Roll the paste very thin and cut into pieces large enough to wrap fillets of sole, which have been seasoned with pepper and salt, and lemon-juice. Fry in deep fat and serve with Tartar Sauce.
